The post What can go right is definitely worth pondering on.
My takeaways are as follows:
- It’s easier to focus on what can go wrong (wondering why?)
- Definitely more things can go wrong (not sure if all wrong outcomes are realistic)
- It’s more difficult to protect against them, although you can take some measures you can’t cover all bases.
- It’s more difficult to control them – earthquakes, flooding, accidents come to mind.
- It seems that less things can go right (is it because we don’t dream big enough?)
- Yet paradoxically there is a better control over them – it’s the daily actions that lead to outcomes we seek.
- It’s more satisfying to do something right – cut the grass, write a blog post, play with your child, go out for a dinner with a loved one.
If you were to draw up a list of what is not worth losing? So far I came up with the following.
